Maha Shivratri is one of the major Hindu festivals which cherish the coming together of Lord Shiva and Goddess Shakti. It is celebrated each year in admiration of Lord Shiva, the God of destruction and regeneration. Primarily the day is known as the occasion when Shiva unites Shakti.
Maha Shivratri also marks a commemoration of ‘overcoming darkness and ignorance’ in life and the world. According to the history of Sanatan Dharma, Maha Shivaratri is the night when Lord Shiva has performed the Tandava Nritya, the dance of primal creation, preservation and destruction. As per spiritual stories Shiva drank venomous negativity to save the world from harm.
When it comes to celebration devotees observe fast for the whole day and perform rituals like Puja, Yajna and Jagran. At many places, mostly in cities of central and northern parts of the Country people showcase jhanki or procession of Shiva-Parvati marriage.
Maha Shivratri usually falls on Krishna Paksha Chaturdashi of the last month of Hindu Calender i.e.; Phalguna Mass. This year the festival will be observed on March 11, 2021.
कैलासराणा शिव चंद्रमौळी ।
फणींद्र माथा मुकुटीं झळाळी ॥
कारुण्यसिंधू भवदुःखहारी ।
तुजवीण शंभो मज कोण तारी ॥
ॐ त्र्यम्बकं यजामहे सुगन्धिं पुष्टिवर्धनम् ।
उर्वारुकमिव बन्धनान् मृत्योर्मुक्षीय मामृतात् ॥
द्वादश ज्योतिर्लिंग स्तुति
सौराष्ट्रे सोमनाथं च श्रीशैले मल्लिकार्जुनम्।
उज्जयिन्यां महाकालमोंकारं ममलेश्वरम् ॥१॥
परल्यां वैजनाथं च डाकियन्यां भीमशंकरम्।
सेतुबन्धे तु रामेशं नागेशं दारुकावने ॥२॥
वारणस्यां तु विश्वेशं त्र्यम्बकं गौतमी तटे।
हिमालये तु केदारं ध्रुष्णेशं च शिवालये ॥३॥
एतानि ज्योतिर्लिंगानि सायं प्रातः पठेन्नरः।
सप्तजन्मकृतं पापं स्मरेण विनश्यति ॥४॥
